To be fair I don't think there is an anime in existence that hasn't borrowed something from somewhere. But I do find it strange the OP has never seen this in anything else ever. It's commonly done in tons of anime and live action shows. It's just in Naruto it's done all the time.


Oh, I've seen copying & derivative concepts time & time again. However, that often has to do with characters, plot, or overarching themes. Very rarely do you see blatant copying of the mechanics of a story. The nuts & bolts of how a world & it's functionality works.

I recently heard Digimon described as "The Wal-Mart version of Pokemon". Would that make this the Dollar Store version of Naruto?


Digimon is very different from Pokemon though aside from the fact that it's kids who train monsters.

The stories are fundamentally different, the ways the monsters work are fundamentally different. Hell Pokemon takes place in its own world, while Digimon takes place in the real world and employs a sci-fantasy aspect to it. Comparing Pokemon to Digimon is like comparing an Apple to a Tomato.



Digimon are the bastard child of tamagotchi & Pokemon. Add too much angst, & you've got the entire idea nearly encapsulated.

But some teenagers said that in a Teens React youtube video after they were shown the OP to the first season. So it has to be true

I've never seen the show so I'd like to know how is this SyFy show a blatant copy of Naruto?


Well here's a synopsis of the first episode:

Quentin and Julia are invited to a test of their magical skills. Quentin passes and is accepted to Brakebills University. Julia fails the test and they attempt to wipe her memory about Brakebills and the test, but she manages to leave herself a clue to remember. Refusing to accept that she cannot learn magic, she is later contacted by Pete, who offers to teach her. In his dreams, Quentin meets Jane Chatwin from the "Fillory and Further" novels, who warns him about the Beast and leaves him with a sigil burned into his hand. Alice recognizes the sigil and sees it as an opportunity to know how her brother died. She and Quentin, together with Penny and Kady try to contact her dead brother, Charlie. Instead they accidentally summon the Beast who appears in the school the next day, attacking a teacher and the dean.


Yep, just like being born into a ninja village

This thread has to be a bad attempt at trolling.

Well, there maybe be a LITTLE bit of trolling, but for the most part, I presented my point of view, my reasons for thinking so, & then asked others to respond to my suggestion.

......

Also, strictly speaking, if this was technically a bad attempt at trolling, no one would have responded.
